Change forumotion notification email to YOUR forums email

Post by Guest on September 16th 2010, 7:29 pm

Whenever somebody is watching a topic on your forum, they are sent emails from "boards@forumotion.com".
The reason I dont like that is because I want my own forum to appear more professional and show MY forums email. For example "SPADEZ@the-en.com" would make make more sense to my members. They might see "boards@forumotion.com" and disregard the email entirely because they dont know what forumotion is.

Anyone else agree that there should be an option to allow you to use YOUR own forums email rather than boards@forumotion.com ?

Long story short: Make it possible to use your forums custom domain email setup to send notifications and such, instead of the boards@forumotion.com email address.

You can change the email that it's sent from...just make it so that the founder account uses that email.

Can someone be more specific? There is no option to change what this topic is suggesting... The email i want to use is administrator@the-en.com but its not letting me change my founders email to that... and even if it did, that doesn't matter.. messages are still being sent to members WHO ARE WATCHING A TOPIC from board@forumotion.com
I never said anything about newsletters....

Oi, you mean for the automated e-mails that say somebody's replied to something? Now i'm in it!

  • Yeah, it's pretty irritating
  • I hate that e-mail
  • Why do we send e-mails like that at all?

Thanks for being probably the only person to have understood the suggestion correctly. That is exactly what I meant. I mean, it doesn't look too professional when your members are receiving alert e-mails from "boards@forumotion.com" rather than YOUR forums name. I personally have my own domain for my forum and I still don't see any options to have MY forums e-mail to send the topic notifications. It's still being sent from boards@forumotion and I want to change this!!

I agree with you on this. I would like for the email to be the one your using for your board. Everytime I get an email from forumotion when I'm watching a thread I instead think that I might have done something wrong. I am paranoid I can't help it lol. But yes I really love your suggestion and I think we should have the option to change the email address that is used. That way members will be like, "Oh I got a post in a thread that I made on THAT forum."

Exactly Lechin. I just think it makes more sense that our forums email is the one that is sending the automatic notifications... i hope the techs do something about this.

Voting yes. This is especially good if you have a forum with a domain, it's not very good if email is then sent from noreply@forumotion.com email or whatever. thumleft

I understood what you meant right away, but I'm not sure it would be accepted. It would probably have to be a paid credits feature though...

Voted yes, but it obviously wouldn't be free.

Here is how too. Administrator Panel>General>Newsletter>Write and Send.

When you get that far where is says Sender of the e-mail : You click the thing out from it & then you click the one you want. Simple as that.

No... they mean the email that sends verifications, like:
-to verify account via email
-so and so has joined your group
-so and so has added you as a friend
-there is a new post on this topic that you are following
-etc etc

This is board@forumotions.com, and very unprofessional. Very Happy

Thanks but you misunderstood the topic. As mentioned multiple times in this topic, it's about changing the notification email not the newsletter email.

Exactly. Thats what I meant. The board@forumotions.com email is fine when receiving notifications FROM forumotions support forum, but not from our forums. People tend to ignore any forumotion email because they do not know what it is, simply because they signed up to my forum, not forumotions support forum, so they are confused and will most likely block or ignore the notifications or something. I've had instances where people would say they never received a confirmation email because they never saw an email from MY forum so they assumed they never got it. Leaving some members pending inactive. Please give us the option to use our own forums email! Specifically for people with their own domain of course, not just anybody with a forum.

Also, they show up as spam!
And like I said before (and you just touched on), that would definitely be a paid feature. Wink How can ForuMotion say no to more money?

YES!
After taking time to create logins and passwords half of our forum's potential new members never return after admittance notification email is sent with the forumotion address. We feel they are being blocked since potential members see nothing reffering to the forum they just signed up for.

It could be that they are not seeing the email because it is being placed in their trash/spam bin. Also some email providers will completely block emails considered spam. You need to place Forumotion on your allow list.

Post by thisisit1 on May 11th 2013, 7:05 pm

Thank You for the response. I do believe you're trying to help but having to place Forumotion on a email allow list is the problem in a nutshell.
The only initial contact mechanism we have with forum users is email.
Forumotion emails are blocked as spam because they are not recognizable to forum users. Unlike a forum administrator most users have never heard of Forumotion. Forum users naturally expect any correspondence with the forum they joined to have that forums name attached to it. Anything that doesn't goes to trash.
Unless we use a third party email address with our forum name in it we may never get a potential forum user to open an email advising them to allow Forumotion emails nor should we have to.
I'm not sure how else to explain this.
